The NHL regular season returns to Orange County, and the 2007 Stanley Cup champion Anaheim Ducks are ready to make their push towards a second crown in franchise history. If you miss your chance to secure a home game ticket—don't worry. We've found five bars and restaurants near Honda Center with the perfect hockey atmosphere.
The Ducks face the Pacific Division Champion Calgary Flames on Thursday April 13th, at 7:30 pm. It might be sunny for 288 days a year and never snow here. But we’re amped to show we’re a passionate hockey town by gathering in hockey hotspots and donning club colors to watch the Ducks battle it out on the ice.
Just a 10-minute walk from Honda Center, the Tilted Kilt will host watch parties while the team is on the road with a variety of giveaways from the Ducks Street Team. Get yourself into the hockey mindset with specialty drinks such as the “Ducks Rita” and “Strawberry Faceoff ” and feast on tasty boneless wings while you watch the Ducks on the ice.

A local favorite for Ducks fans. JT Schmid’s is located just across Katella Avenue from Honda Center. It’s bound to be a raucous hockey haven where you can grab a drink before, during, or after the Ducks games.

Located on Main Street and only a 20-minute walk from Honda Center, Danny K’s is one of Orange County’s largest pool halls but also a place that bills itself as “where the game is always on.” With eight 14-foot screens, you’ll feel so close to the action, maybe even shudder when Ducks Captian Ryan Getzlaf delivers his next hard-hitting shoulder check. Ouch.
